Dear Customers and Friends,

All the fun new things that Susan and Nancy ordered at market are coming in. Make sure to take a look at all the new books and patterns featured below.

We've just finished the final session of Mystery Weekend 48.  We can't show you the mystery quilts yet because the folks participating in Mystery by Mail 48 aren't done yet. We can share all the fun show & tell that we saw during the Mystery Weekend sessions.  Go to our blog if you'd like to check out the slide show.  What a fantastic selection of quilts!

If you're working on a Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt, be sure to let us know if you plan to have your quilt ready for the show in January.  It looks like we'll have around 30 quilts to show and we'll be displaying them in 2 groups. Each group will be on exhibit for about 10 days beginning January 1.  Look for details on the display dates and times in our Winter Class Schedule, coming out early in December. This is definitely a show you won't want to miss.  Our Sylvia's group has been working for about 2-1/2 years on quilts using 6" blocks from the book Sylvia's Bridal Sampler by Jennifer Chiaverini. What an accomplishment!  We've already seen some of the finished quilts and there will be lots of different sets and quite a variety of fabric selections. 

We're busy working on the Winter Class Schedule.  Watch for it in the mail and on the website in early December. We have lots of fun things planned including a Bali Wedding Star class with Julie, a new Color Club with Cheri and new sessions of the LeMoyne Star class with Susan.

Coupon book holders, don't miss our Thanksgiving Special coupon, good for 10% off on batt, basting pins and basting spray.  Stop in November 21 - 26 (we closed 11/24 for Thanksgiving)

Our most popular demo is coming up soon!  Susan will be showing Quick Gift Ideas on Saturday, November 26 from 10:00-1:00.  Take a break from your Thanksgiving festivities and come get some great ideas for yourself or friends!

Remember to enter your name in the November 35th Anniversary Celebration drawing.  You can enter your name each time you come into the shop during the month.

If you can't make it into the shop and there is something you are interested in, please call us at (612) 724-1079 and we'll be happy to answer any questions about products and take your order over the phone. Or, visit our website at

Hope to see you soon!
Nancy, Susan & Emily
